Killer eels? Yes please!

Update: Animal Planet’s first Original Horror film, BLOOD LAKE: ATTACK OF THE KILLER LAMPREY’S is coming to DVD and BLUERAY July 22 from the folks over at ASYLUM under the title BLOOD LAKE. Pre-oder here.

Just in!  Info on the next movie from James Cullen Bressack.  He keeps climbing up the horror food-chain with every movie – and we can’t wait to see this one.

He’s just smiling…. right?

And yes, a lamprey isn’t really an eel.  But just look at those teeth!

“Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys”
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water.

Looking to get in on the campy “Sharknado” phenomenon, Animal Planet has set its own horror film from The Asylum — the same people behind “Sharknado” — called “Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys,” set to premiere this Memorial Day weekend.

The two-hour scripted movie stars Shannen Doherty (“Beverly Hills, 90210”), Christopher Lloyd (“Back to the Future”) and Jason Brooks (“Days of Our Lives”), and is directed by James Cullen Bressack (“Pernicious”). Doherty and company battle lampreys — eel-like fish with huge teeth and funnel-shaped mouths — after they slide their way into the city’s sewer system and start terrorizing the residents of a small Michigan town.

Brooks plays Michael, a fish and wildlife expert who moves to the town with his wife, Cate (Doherty), after being summoned by the town mayor, Akerman (Lloyd), to help deal with its attacking fish problem. (“River Monsters” star Jeremy Wade also makes a cameo.)


Don’t you hate it when that happens?

But with these blood-suckers on the loose, the town’s residents quickly learn that a casual dip in the pool or routine trip to the toilet can turn deadly as the lampreys hunt for their next victim.

The logline states, “There is absolutely nowhere to run, and no one is safe.”

“Blood Lake” will premiere on Sunday, May 25 at 9 p.m. as part of the network’s third annual “Monster Week” (actually nine days long) programming block.

Other Monster Week specials include “Man-Eating Zombie Cats” — about big cats with a thirst for human blood — and a quest to find a giant crocodile tormenting a village in “Nature’s Most Wanted.”


So…. how’d you spend your weekend?
